Portrait of Dr. Luci KohnProfessor

Ph.D. University of Wisconsin, 1989

Office: SW 1210
Research Lab: SW 0015
Phone: (618) 650-2394


Courses Taught: Human Diseases (BIOL 205), Human Anatomy and Physiology (BIOL 240a, BIOL 240b), Forensic Biology (BIOL 423), Functional Human Anatomy (BIOL 440), Quantitative Morphology (BIOL 481), Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy (BIOL 489).

Research Interests: My research focus is on the evolution of skeletal morphology, and the effect of genetic and non-genetic influences on skeletal morphology. Current research includes two– and three– dimensional morphometrics analyses of cranial and postcranial form in New World monkeys and carnivores.

Research Opportunities: Undergraduate and graduate students interested in participating in research on skeletal functional morphology and evolution should contact me.
